With three weeks left until the drawing at the Fifth Saturday Farmers and Friends Festival Oct. 29, there are still plenty of Rifle Raffle Tickets available from the Rotary Club. The prize is a $500 rifle or other firearm from Madison Sporting Goods and Pawn on SW Range Street. However, if the winner prefers to have $500 worth of hunting and sporting equipment instead, he or she can choose that. Also, if the winner would like a more expensive firearm or more than $500 worth of merchandise, he or she can simply pay the difference.
Alan Sowell, proprietor of Madison Sporting Goods and Pawn, will be on hand to offer advice about his merchandise, if needed.
Tickets are $2 for a chance at the big prize, says Charles Dean, who is overseeing ticket sales. The Rifle Raffle is the Rotary Club’s biggest fundraiser, and the proceeds go toward the Rotary’s many charity projects throughout the year.
For your chance at the big prize on Oct. 29, see any member of the Rotary Club for tickets.
